Dr. Ross gave me all the time I needed to ask questions, operated and then came to see me and again was very generous with his time and his explanation of my diagnosis and what to expect. I would definitely recommend him. He made a difficult time more manageable. His staff was also wonderful.

Dr. Ross quickly diagnosed me when I arrived at the hospital this week. He was referred to me by my mother in law. I was out of the hospital 26 hours later feeling fine. I highly recommend him.

He made me feel comfortable the minute I met him. I was pleased with his explanation of what was going to happen in surgery and the time he gave me to ask him questions.
